    I use a dental pick

    Get one that you can put between the post and the clip. Place a finger on the clip and pull the clip off with the pick. little blob of grease on the tip of your finger might help if you are worried about dropping it. Will post a pick later when I finger it out.

    Have you tried Joe Poole ? Ferguson Poole in Atlanta Georgia. Great guy to deal with and very helpful with advice !! It might help if you post your location in your profile. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii shipping costs can be higher 😉

    I would do as you suggested with the drill, but use a cordless one for safety sake.That’s what I have done.

    quote CaptChuck:

    Never heard the word ‘penurious’ before. Not to hijack this post but what does it mean? When I tried looking it up the definition I got did not fit your sentence. Being an old man I must have missed it in school some 50 years ago.

    probably an auto correct error 😉

    If you have access to a sand blast cabinet, a quick once over will give the aluminum a nice profile for the primer/paint to grab hold of.

    The blast cabinet I have access to at work is a pretty powerful one, so I take care not to linger in any one spot.The heat generated could warp the blades and/or thin them out along the edges.

    Once blasted, I coat with epoxy primer and a urethane top coat. you are unlikely to have these coatings on hand so just use an etching primer with a rattle can for finish, then touch it up whenever it looks in need.

    Johnny_inFL ,

    That looks like John Deere cornhead grease. A good choice for gearcase with minor leaks, from what I hear.
